He puts the "pathetic" in "apathetic". (20)

Tonight, I crawled into bed with my boyfriend at 8:00pm. Nothing kinky, unfortunately. He was just depressed. For no reason.

Yet another beautiful evening wasted because he wanted to curl up in a ball.

I agree with >>10 . Force him to get off of his ass, and maybe he'll stop feeling so worthless.

> my boyfriend
> I've gotta get him moving, and get his mental health up.

I admire your compassion, but that's not your responsibility. It's officially his doctor/therapist/counselor's job, but in reality the burden is unfortunately on him to get better. The collapse of the survival instinct is what makes depression so emotionally crippling.

Totally do not break up with him because I feel it's a 90% risk that it'll end up permanent.

>>6 has a good point. Excersise. Activity. DOING something. Stuff like that should really help.

>>17 - we aren't. Trust me on this.

But I've just been in the same kind of situation. I think you really need to have a long talk to him about all this, even if you end up yelling. Hey, it may help to get the message across.

You don't have to compete, he probably feels depressed because you are experiencing a full life, a job, a social life that he probably doesn't have (since you say he spends all the day at home etc.) and he's feeling inferior in some or other way.

If it's bugging you that much and you're just going to get angry, then break up.

But rather than that, I advise you try and find out what the matter is? I was in a similar predicament once, he was manic depressive. Now we just curl up together.
